Join Bay Area climate leaders on Oct. 18 to explore opportunities for
building a "carbon-balanced planet":
Tues., Oct 18
Sustainable Silicon Valley & Center for Carbon Removal
"Creating an Ecosystem for a Carbon Balanced Planet" workshop will explore
how Bay Area business, policy, and NGO leaders can partner with local
carbon removal solution developers.
Nancy Pfund, Founder & Managing Partner, DBL Partners
Join keynote speaker, Founder and Managing Partner of DBL Partners, Nancy
Pfund, and Executive Director of the Center for Carbon Removal, Noah Deich,
as they kick off the event and explore the importance of building carbon
removal solutions today. This workshop will then explore how Bay Area
business, policy, and NGO leaders can partner with local carbon removal
solution developers through short presentations by:
• Brent Constantz, Founder & CEO -- Blue
Planet (Carbon-sequestering cement)
• Graciela Chichilnisky, CEO & Co-founder -- Global
Thermostat (Direct air capture)
• Tom Price, Director of Strategic Initiatives -- All Power
Labs (Biochar + distributed bioenergy)
• Torri Estrada, Managing Director -- Carbon Cycle
Inst. (Carbon farming)
The second half of the workshop will be dedicated to an interactive design
exercise where the presenters will break out into separate tables and work
with participants to brainstorm ideas for building carbon removal pilot
projects in the Bay Area.

WHAT IS CARBON REMOVAL?
"Carbon removal solutions — including ecosystem restoration,
carbon-sequestering agricultural practices, and negative-emissions energy
and manufacturing technologies—can work alongside traditional emissions
abatement strategies (such as renewable energy and ecosystem conservation)
to strengthen climate mitigation action. What makes carbon removal
solutions particularly valuable is their unique ability to take excess CO2
out of the atmosphere. Without carbon removal, it will take millennia for
natural processes to clean up excess atmospheric CO2 — even if we
completely eliminate CO2 emissions." -- Center for Carbon Removal
